Senior Backend Engineer (Authentication and Authorisation)
The Platform Services team exists in order to help Wolt Product teams succeed. We embrace a customer-first mindset for creating tools, services, and sharing knowledge, in the domains of authentication and authorization and event-driven architecture.
In this team, you get to operate at the center of the action, work with a super talented diverse group of people and use the latest technologies to resolve platform-wide problems in the pursuit of high-quality services that are secure, and scalable.
As a Software Engineer in Wolt, you will be responsible for developing the Wolt Authentication component we’ve built from scratch, ensuring its security, reliability, and scalability, as the number of users grows rapidly. It’s a central role in the organization, so you’ll work with multiple teams to secure our consumer applications, internal tools, as well as communication within our systems. In this role, you will be developing systems and libraries that are used across the platform, and you can have a big impact on the future development of these solutions.
Our humble expectations
You know what it takes to develop top-quality software and achieve ambitious goals together. We expect you to be a good communicator, willing to collaborate with people outside of your own team, be a product-oriented and proactive problem solver willing to bring up issues in a constructive manner to the team and the Wolt Product team at large.
To succeed in this role, you should have solid experience in developing authentication and authorization solutions in large-scale, distributed, and high-throughput environments. You should have an understanding of security concerns in web applications. You’ll be a great asset to the team if you are proficient in Python. Experience with Go, Java, and related languages is seen as beneficial, and we also value previous front-end development exposure. Concepts such as SSO, Oauth, OpenID Connect, IAM, JWT, HTTP, and REST are no strangers to you.
The compensation will be a negotiable combination of monthly pay and Wolt stock options. The latter make it exceptionally easy to be excited about our company growing and doing well, as you'll own a piece of the pie.
